Very impressed and highly recommended. I was charged with driving on a suspended license, and after getting an Extraordinary License was charged again for breaching it and was facing what I thought was a certain cancellation of the license. Nick addressed everything beautifully and made the prosecutor drop some charges and I walked away with a fine only.
Highly recommended, very professional, great outcome and just a really good man. I had tried multiple lawyers, 6 or 7 of them from the Perth area, he was the most straight forward and honest, the rest were humming and haaaring about my case, if it wasn't for Nick Stevenson I would be sitting behind bars right now, thank you Stevenson Legal. Best in the business!
Efficient, effective and professional. I highly recommend Stevenson Legal. His presence and knowledge when we were in the court was very impressive. I could not be happier with the outcome.
I wasn’t in a good place and I feared for the worst when I found Nick. Within a few minutes of discussion I was made to feel I had viable options and control of my life back. The results were fantastic and I couldn’t recommend them higher- it’s fast, affordable and fantastic service from day one!
I researched lawyers for a long time to represent a friend. Nick got a great outcome at the hearing, much better than expected. He is an extremely good lawyer. Very intelligent and efficient. He really went above and beyond. Thank you so much Nick.
In certain circumstances, driving without authority or under suspension is an “impounding” offence in Western Australia. If your vehicle is seized you will usually need to pay for the costs of impounding, towing, and any applicable storage and administration fees.
The police may impound the vehicle used in the commission of the offence or alternatively may seek to impound a third party vehicle depending on the circumstances.
If your vehicle has been impounded and you have paid for its release, you should ensure you keep the receipt. If your vehicle was not lawfully impounded, you may be able to negotiate for reimbursement of cost
Driving contrary to the conditions of your extraordinary driver’s licence will not usually be dealt with as a charge of driving without authority. Instead, there are specific offences dealing with driving contrary to the terms of an extraordinary driver’s licence. If convicted of driving contrary to the terms of your extraordinary driver’s licence, the court must impose a fine of up to $1,200.00 and must cancel the extraordinary driver’s licence unless persuaded that there are exceptional circumstances that would justify a fine only.
If you have been charged with breaching the conditions of your extraordinary driver’s licence, you should seek legal advice as soon as possible prior to your court date. You may only have one opportunity to argue that your extraordinary licence should not be cancelled.
